Red, White and Blueberry Buckle

Today was kind of overcast and it had been raining all morning. When I arrived at the log home the kitchen floor was all grouted.

Next, grout time for the bathroom.

The diversion ditch out back was a mini river from all the rain.

Today’s menu, more popular cookout, or in, favorites to get summer off to a good start. Jordan’s Red Hot Dog’s (it’s a Maine thing) other hot dogs for someone who will remain nameless, Corn-on-the-Cob, and Red, White and Blueberry Buckle.

Preparing the entryway for grouting.


Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

You need water? He will supply a rainy day for your needs. Collecting rain water for the grout washing.

Cleaning out the grout buckets. Another productive day.

Red, White and Blueberry Buckle

Here’s the basic recipe I used; I used a combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.


  • 1 ½ cups white sugar 
  • ½ cup butter, softened 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder 
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries 


  • 1 ⅓ cups white sugar 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • ⅔ cup cold butter, cut into cubes 


  • Step 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9”x13” baking pan.
  • Step 2. Prepare buckle: beat sugar and butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Beat in eggs. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture, alternating with milk, until batter is just combined; fold in blueberries. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Step 3. Prepare topping: combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Cut in cold butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until topping is crumbly. Sprinkle topping over batter.
  • Step 4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool buckle on a wire rack.


John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
